Chicken Keeping

Dear Parents,

We are constantly looking for new and exciting ways of bringing the curriculum alive for the children and we believe that chicken keeping is a unique tool for learning outside the classroom, engaging all pupils, and linking sustainability issues with other areas of the curriculum. Every child is familiar with chicken and eggs as a food so meeting a real-life clucking chicken is a powerful way to start forming links between the foods we eat, the farms that produce it and the environmental systems involved.

A small group of chickens is a simple way to become more self-sufficient by producing some of our own food.  Meeting or caring for chickens raises empathy and provides opportunities to explore a huge range of relevant topics from climate change, advertising, bullying, diet, micro-organisms, careers, safety and life-cycles to https://capsi.ca/cialis-generika-in-deutschland-rezeptfrei-kaufen/ name but a handful. Chickens https://capsi.ca/buy-promethazine-codeine-cough-syrup-online/ are easy to handle, resilient and make wonderful pets.

There are no health risks as long a good hygiene procedures are followed by everyone. All children, who would like to work with the chickens, will need to wash their hands thoroughly with soap and warm water and we will use a disinfectant mat for their shoes.

We will not have the chickens running freely but a specially built coop is being constructed during the half term holiday.

We will be setting up a rota asking for staff and parents to sign up to feed and water the chickens during the weekends and some school holidays.  Payment will be by way of any eggs the chickens lay during the time you are looking after them.

We hope you agree that this is an exciting opportunity for the children and will let you know when the https://capsi.ca/generic-valtrex-cold-sores/ chickens join so you can come along and meet them.

If you have any questions then please feel free to email me.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. S. Marsh

Headteacher
